Abstract

Double-balloon endoscopy (DBE) is a new technique that allows diagnosis and treatment throughout the entire small intestine. We have recently developed a method that allows a single operator to perform DBE, by employing "grip and pinch" and "hold (or 'keep') and slide" techniques. This one-person method obviates the need for two operators who must cooperate closely.
